So it was ordered that the vote be counted.
Ordered, That the Clerk acquaint the Senate therewith.
A message from the Senate by Mr. Gorham, their Secretary:

Mr. Speaker : The Senate have adopted a resolution providing that the
votes of the electors of the State of Louisiana for President and Vice-
President of the United States be counted.
The Senate again appeared,
Pending the further opening and counting of the votes,

Mr. Benjamin F. Butler submitted the following objection to counting the vote of the State of Georgia, viz:

I object, under the joint rule that the vote of the State of Georgia for President and Vice-President ought not to be counted, and object to the counting thereof because, among other things, the vote of the electors in the electoral college was not given on the first Wednesday of December, as required by law, and no excuse or justification for the omission of such legal duty is set forth in the certificate of the action of the electors.

Secondly, Because at the date of the election of said electors the State of Georgia had not been admitted to representation as a State in Congress since the rebellion of her people, or become entitled thereto.

Thirdly, That at said date said State of Georgia had not fulfilled in due form all the requirements of the Constitution and laws of the United States, known as the reconstruction acts, so as to entitle said State of Georgia to be represented as a State in the Union in the electoral vote of the several States in the choice of President and Vice-President.

Fourthly, That the election pretended to have been held in the State of Georgia on the first Tuesday of November last past was not a free, just, equal, and fair election ; but the people of the State were deprived of their just rights therein by force and fraud.

Whereupon,
The Senate withdrew,
The question was then put, Shall the vote of the said State be counted ?

Yeas...
